I have updated the emtacl10: emerging technologies in academic libraries website; the changes add a lot of content (and some new dates!) to the information that was published previously.
For me, the interesting thing was combining a set of technologies:
- blueprint css
- eXtensible Metadata Platform (XMP)
The really cool thing about these technologies is that they made everything really quite easy; easy to create valid, accessible code, and easy to do all of this quickly.
The “assets” list is created from metadata embedded into the files that are listed there; this, and the rest of the content is updated using AJAX provided by the jquery framework. Blueprint css is used for the layout.
Two day’s work inclusive of everything! (And I really dislike creating webpages, but this verged on fun.)
